According to him, it was wrong for the security agencies to have relied on a petition by Shiites group not to confirm El-Rufai, adding that the Shiite group has been proscribed by the Federal Government hence their petition should not hold water.


The Ulamas described the petitions against El-Rufai by Shiites and some others as outrageous and unfounded, and urged the Senate to ignore the unfounded allegations against the former Governor and confirm him based on his competency and contribution to the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last election.
